Hearts Desire Shores of Indian Lake #2 PDF ↠ Desire


Hearts Desire Shores of Indian Lake #2 Heart's Desire is the second book in Lanigan's Shores of Indian Lake series which now includes nine books I haven't read book one or any of the other books so I struggled a bit with all of the characters Not only are there many plot threads going on but the story is told from many many perspectives You'd expect to read things from the main characters' points of view but Mrs Beabots? Some lady named Louise? Every time the book shifted to a perspective that wasn't Nate's or Maddie's I was jarred out of the story I would've enjoyed the book had it been only told from two points of viewI loved reading about Maddie's uest to franchise her Cupcakes and Coffee Cafe The whole process was fascinating—and complicated as Alex the investment firm employee helping her secure an investor had that business on his mind Then just as everything seemed to be going right with Maddie's business and with Alex her ex boyfriend Nate showed up The scene where Maddie first saw Nate was one of my favorites in the whole book 🙂While I was interested in the romance the love triangle drove me a bit crazy Love triangles are never my favorite but I don't mind them if they're done well—especially if it's not completely obvious which two should end up together In Heart's Desire there's never a doubt that Maddie should choose Nate and I highly disliked the way she carried on with both men I also didn't like her indecision after she made her decision I just wanted to grab her and say If you're not sure take your time No rushObviously I had a few issues with this novel but overall I did enjoy the story I won this is a goodreads giveaway The book is the second in the Shores of Indian Lake but can be read without having read the others just fine The protagonist is Maddie Strong who has a cupcake business and is looking to turn it into a franchise Her love interest is Nate Barzonni her boyfriend in high school who proposed to her and then disappeared for eleven years He has finally come home and the characters struggle to come to grasp with their feelings after so long of being apart but never having forgotten each other Further complication is thrown in when Alex a businessman who can help give Maddie her franchise reveals that he would also like to be a bigger part of Maddie's life beyond just business I thought the book was easy to read and follow The scenes around Maddie's restaurant had colorful or tasteful I should say descriptions of the cupcakes I usually don't like love triangles very much but this one was believable and not so corny as others Also its safe for teens and young adults to read there's no vulgar language Heart’s Desire is book two from the Shores of Indian Lake series by Catherine Lanigan I have not read the first book in the series and had no problem getting into the story This is also my first introduction of this author’s work I thoroughly enjoyed it Maddie is a fun character to get to know Nate is one character full of mystery and intrigue to me I did not care too much for Alex but he fit nicely into the plot Heart’s Desire is a delightful read that I thought was worth sitting down for a few hours It is heartwarming cute sweet clean and romantic I did not care that it was slightly predictable Definitely worth putting on a reader’s must read list I give it a well deserved 5 stars and look forward to reading others in the Shores of Indian Lake series as well as by Catherine Lanigan I received this book from the publisher This review is 100% my own honest opinion I've only read books 6 and 7 in the series but it was fun being back in Indian Lake Heart's Desire was a captivating story that had me hooked from the bridal shop scene I liked Maddie a lot and found her determination of reaching her goal of franchising her shop admirable However I didn't like how she was dating two guys at the same time or the way she handled things after making her decision between themAll in all this was an enjoyable read and I'm glad to have read it I'm excited that this book was made into a Hallmark TV movie and definitely plan to watch it once it airs I received a complimentary copy of this book to review I was asked to give my honest opinion of the book which I have done 35 stars I would like to thank Prism Book Tours for giving me this item My opinion and review were not influenced by this giftIt's always interesting to find a new author only to discover they have been writing for a long time  Catherine Lanigan has written many books and I imagine they are all as good as Heart's Desire  The first thing I noticed about the book was the wonderful descriptions that were used  Such beautiful imagery was used throughout the book  The author also went into detail about the rigors of Naval training in a way I have not seen before and also the description of heart surgery  Ok I have to confess that did make me a little ueasy  Yeah I'm a wimp when it comes to that kind of thing  Nevertheless it was very interestingMaddie was very sweet yet very insecure  She felt like she needed to prove that she wasn't like her mom  The fact that she didn't have a college education made her feel insignificant or at least inadeuate  This ended up influencing her actions and her choices and always drove her to do betterI loved the scene when Maddie first saw Nate when he returned to town  Both of their reactions were great especially his  And then when she punched him in the stomach at the exclusive club on Easter  Just sayin'The author did a great job in conveying deep emotion and creating a realistic love triangle  The story went one direction and then another yet it still made sense given the history and Maddie's insecurity  Once you thought everything was going well a new conflict aroseOverall it was a great story and just the right lengthThis review was originally posted on Among the ReadsI would like to thank Prism Book Tours for giving me this item My opinion and review were not influenced by this gift

business I really loved her but Nate was a bit self centered and never to me grew beyond the kid that skipped town after asking her to marry him and never once letting her know why for over ten years I'd have liked him if he had stood up to his father and honesty tried to whoo Maddie instead of taking her for granted because he was a big time cardiologistspoiler alert He changed but only at the end as if the author needed to end the book As long as each book stands alone I’m fine with coming in late to a series Despite my best intentions though I don’t make it to the earlier books As is the case with Catherine Lanigan’s Shores of Indian Lake books So I was thrilled when the opportunity to read one of the second book written in this series came about It was a treat to get to go back in time a little—to the true introduction of the Barzonni familyWhat struck me most about this book is the exploration of changing dreams Remember when you were in high school and thought your future was all mapped out for you? How did those dreams work out?Probably about the same as they did for Nate and Maddie Strong When life brings them back together eleven years later each has new goals and dreams As they admit the mistakes of their youth are they willing to let go of their new dreams and plans now?Another engaging and warm read from Catherine Lanigan that thanks to Hallmark we can soon watch on the small screen Between Maddie’s friendships Nate’s family and the small town this story is a perfect fit for a Hallmark movieDisclosure statementI receive complimentary books from publishers publicists andor authors including NetGalley I am not reuired to write positive reviews The opinions I have expressed are my own I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR Part 255 His homecoming is bittersweetfor both of them Café owner Maddie Strong is finally ready to take her burgeoning cupcake business to the next level With the help of handsome businessman Alex Perkins her future's all mapped out Until her first love comes home At seventeen Maddie adored Nate Barzonni with her whole heart and soul But when he asked her to elope she'd said no—she couldn't let him throw away his dream of becoming a doctor Then he vanished from her life for eleven years Now the cardiac surgeon has returned to Indian Lake asking for a second chance and Maddie has to choose between her new lifeand the man she never stopped loving Once again Mrs Lanigan has transported us back to Indian Lake Where everything seems real including the characters This is the second book I have read from this author This book will keep ya turning the pages to see what is going to happen I loved the characters in this story They felt like real life people and I felt everything they were going thorough And I mean what could be better than having two guys fighting for you I really enjoyed this book and felt every moment of the story I wish I had the Hallmark channel so I could watch it when it comes onI'm giving this book 45 Stars out of 5I received an ARC of this book for my honest review Heart’s Desire Love the story of Maddie and Nate I am looking forward to seeing the movie of it Nate left her eleven years ago and comes back to town to work at the local hospital I loved that he was a surgeon He wants to work at the Indian reservation once there is an opening Maddie had a coffee shop with bake goods sounded so good Will they be able to get back together?
